With Easter right around the corner and eveyone getting ready for spring family festivities here are some of the most popular Easter recipes to share with your family.
Directions for Large Hard Boiled Eggs:
Place eggs in a saucepan with enough COLD tap water to cover completely by 1 inch. Bring to a ROLLING boil over HIGH heat. Once the water is brought to a rolling boil, PROMPTLY reduce heat to a lower medium boil and cook an additional 10 minutes for a “hard boiled” egg. For a “soft boiled” egg reduce the time by a few minutes.
Remove from heat and IMMEDIATELY place eggs under ice cold water or in a bowl of ICED water to chill promptly to help yolks stay bright yellow. Chill for a few minutes in the cold water until the egg is completely cooled. This is an extremely important step which prevents the greenish “ring” from forming on the surface of the yolk over time. If the egg is not chilled immediately after cooking an unsightly dark greenish ring will eventually appear on the outside of the yolk.
To peel…crack on all sides, roll egg between hands to loosen shell,and remove shell. Enjoy, with a light sprinkling of salt if desired.
To serve in egg cup, place egg in cup small end down, slice off large end of egg with knife or egg scissors and eat from shell with spoon.
Refrigeration is necessary for hard boiled eggs if the eggs are not to be consumed within a few hours.

|PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE From Cooks|
2/3 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
Place the butter and brown sugar in a frying pan and melt until it boils or bubbles. A cast iron pan works well because it’s heavy and will be less likely to scorch.
1 can pineapple slices
maraschino cherries (enough to fill centers of pineapples)
Place pineapples in the butter and sugar mixture. Put cherries in the center of the pineapple. Cut the slices of pineapple into halves and line the sides of the frying pan with them (standing up on edge).
Prepare a box of yellow cake mix following the directions on the box to mix the batter (do not bake in a separate pan; follow instructions below).
Pour the batter over the pineapple and cherries.
Bake at 350°F degrees. When the cake is done, loosen the edges with a butter knife. Remove from heat and allow to sit five minutes, then turn it upside down on a serving dish.
Optional: Instead of using a cake mix, you can prepare the batter from scratch using the recipe below, or any recipe for yellow cake.
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
Combine ingredients and beat 1 minute. Pour batter over pineapples and cherries (same as above). Bake at 350°F and follow same steps as above.
